Despite the efforts of animal control officers and law enforcement, a venomous zebra cobra was captured on a north Raleigh porch Wednesday night, a 48-hour incident that generated nationwide interest.

The cobra was guided into a red bucket and taken to a safe location so that the glue could be removed completely.

As WRAL's cameras captured it earlier in the day, a striped snake slithered out of the siding of a house on Sandringham Drive and onto a porch. In looking around, the hood of the vulture was visible.

When officers confirmed it was the snake, they walked back from the camera crew before moving in to try and capture it.

911 call from that same house sparked the search at the beginning of Tuesday.

A neighbor, Joan Nelson, said she is relieved the ordeal is over.

It makes me feel much safer, she said. Now that I'm outside, I can go on my deck and have a walk. The snake, however, was in a terrible position.

A striped snake lies out on a porch in a north Raleigh neighborhood where a zebra cobra has disappeared.

Having a snake that can spit up to nine feet long can make even a morning dog walk a frightening experience. Consequently, the African Snakebite Institute says the snake is very dangerous. An animal's venom could cause the victim's nervous system to shut down.

One who is poisoned by the cobra would immediately feel pain, swelling, irritation, vomiting, and diarrhea. It would then lead to a high fever and breathing problems, which could cause respiratory failure.

Dr. Salina Locke, a veterinarian at Avian and Exotic Animal Care, treats all kinds of animals.

The cobra in this species usually does not bite. They spray their venom more often -- they're very accurate, she said.

Despite the risks involved, Locke doesn't recommend buying this snake for a pet.

In most cases, bites occur when people are sleeping. A bit could cause health issues for years, research shows.

During a search on Tuesday afternoon, police searched the home on 6917 Chamonix Place, near where the cobra was last seen.

In March, the police visited that residence four times for an animal issue. On Monday and Tuesday, they returned after spotting the zebra cobra on a porch about a half mile away.

According to county records, Keith and Rebecca Gifford live at that address. An account linked to Keith Gifford's name features several photos of snakes belonging to his son, Christopher.
